Well that sounds like the night train,  
Blowin' its stack, 
Spreading its wings, 
All over the  track, 
Arrived here this morning,  
Won't be here for long, 
As fast as a shooting star,  
That's' what them eight wheels are for. 

Come on baby lets jump aboard, 
It's a mean piece of transport baby, 
You know that's no joke. 

On board the aging gambler, 
Smiles as he peels, 
The seal off a new deck,  
Then he quietly deals, 
Hands round the table, 
From the bottom he slips three. 

Watch yourself if you play this game, 
The fastest card game on wheels, 
Come on, won't you be there when it leaves, 
Can't you hear them talkin' about it, 
Together we could race the breeze. 

It shines out a light, 
In the darkest night, 
To make us feel alright, 
To make us feel alright, 
I've prayed every night, 
That you will wanna go there too, 
Come on darlin', let's go. 

Night is over as the dawn begins to crack, 
Sounds like a hen hatching in a chicken shack, 
Late last night I think I heard a lonely cry, 
Heard the blind owl howling in a moonless sky, 

Come on, 
Won't you be there when it leaves, 
Can't ya hear me talkin', 
Together we could race the breeze. 

Old engine driver never stepped on the ground, 
Got no degree in geography but he's been around, 
Knows all the back lines,  
Eyes can hardly see, 
Don't tell this man to slow down, 
'Cause he don't know what you mean, 
Come on 

Won't you be there when it leaves, 
Can't you hear me talkin baby, 
Together we can race the breeze. 

It shines out a light,  
In the darkest night, 
To make us feel alright, 
To make us feel alright, 
I've prayed every night, 
That you will wanna go there too, 
Alright 

Well that sounds like the night train,  
Blowin' its stack, 
Spreading its wheels all over the track, 
Arrived here this morning,  
Won't be here for long 
As fast as a shooting star,  
That's' what them eight wheels are for. 

Won't you be there when it leaves, 
Can't you hear me talkin' baby, 
Together we can race the breeze. 

Can't you hear me talkin' baby, 
Together we can race the breeze. 

Can't you hear me talkin' baby, 
Together we can race the breeze.
